Remember Valkyria Chronicles? The PlayStation 3 exclusive turned PC cult hit? It was a tactical turn-based strategy game which gathered a decent following once it was remastered for PC and PS4. Well it’s being followed up Valkyria Revolution, previously known as Valkyria: Azure Revolution. SEGA has just announced Valkyria Revolution is going to be out on June 27th for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, dropping the news alongside a brand new trailer.

SEGA still touts Valkyria Revolution as a strategy RPG but also hint it’s a radical departure from Valkyria Chronicles. It takes place in a different timeline, continent and even universe than other Valkyria titles, the only real similarity being the constant battling over the precious mineral ragnite and powerful beings known as Valkyria. This time it’s not analogous to World War II either, but inspired by the European industrial revolution.

Combat also has been totally rejigged. Valkyria Revolution is no longer turn-based (boo. hiss.) but real-time, although SEGA is keen to suggest it is “no less strategic”. The pseudo turn-based combat of Valkyria Chronicles was made it great, so it’s disappointing to see SEGA abandon ship. We’ll have to wait and see whether it pays off in the long run. Hopefully it’s not a similar scenario we saw from XCOM: Enemy Unknown to The Bureau: XCOM Declassified.

Anyway, here’s the anime-laced trailer to wrap your eyes around.

 

SEGA seems to be pretty coy on whether Valkyria Revolution is ever going to come to PC. If it does then we’ve probably got a bit of a wait on our hands. Valkyria Chronicles took the best of six years to be ported. Why must you do this to us SEGA?

Loved the combat in Chronicles so I think I'll pass on this :/

This rings all my JRPG bells. And yet, PC does not have it. I am sad...

Awww, I liked the Azure it in the title. While I've not finished Valkyria Chronicles yet, I do have both 1 intermittently on and off and 2 on my PSP waiting to go. I really need to get round to finishing the first one, I really enjoy what I play when I get round to it every now and again.


Here's to hoping that 3 finally gets an official release since its currently PSP Japan only, have heard of a translation patch though so I might need to grab that at some point too

If only they could port the psp version of the games to the PC also. This is my favorite series

Yep, a Valkyria Chronicles II and III (fully localized) remaster for PC would most certainly be welcomed.

With "very positive" reviews on steam and overwhelmingly enthusiastic PC gaming with japanese games, this would be (again) a missed opportunity...
